    I think I may be making a superbug

    Nothing freaks me out more than these threads about UTI's. I've been on antibiotics three and a half times in the last 6 months. Once for Mrsa, once for a swollen lymph node, and again right now for a bladder infection. The thing that freaks me out if each time up taking it (sulfameth) the bug comes back within a few days. I'm trying to avoid having a suprapubic but the way these threads are going and reflecting back on my experience that may happen. being a paraplegic is really frustrating especially when your susceptible the bugs like I am.

    Have you considered trying Microcyn, Puracyn, or Vetericyn (original or VF)? http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showthr...to-Dr-Young%29
    I know this is a very long and complex thread. Once you get through some of the basics, ask any questions you need to about using these products to help prevent colonization and urinary tract infections.

    All the best,

    I have tried this a couple of times but I didn't get good results. It could just be that I was doing it wrong.

    It (Puracyn) helped get rid of a very stubborn bug for me. After being skeptical for years, I believe it worked for me.
